Item Clarification?

Story Forum
So while I was doing the fishing dailies, I came across the Bone Fishing Pole. It was a pretty cool item that was of use and it showed off the theme of the Scourge in a fishing pole. After thinking about it though I realized that if the Scourge needed access to the ocean life or to the water itself that they could easily kill some fish and convert them to do their bidding so it begs the question why would they use a primitive technology such as a fishing pole for their tasks. Yes I know that this item was probably added in the game because it was cool more than anything else but I want to hear of anyone else's ideas of a lore background behind this. What do you think this item's area of origin is and the purpose of the creation of the device?

My current ideas behind it is that it might be a vrykul item that they created, or perhaps that in order to help out the vrykul they used it to encourage more people to join the Scourge but it's still half-fleshed out ideas anyways.
Someone made a fishing pole with bits of whatever was lying around, and bones are in large supply in Northrend.

If that's true then why does it have the Scourge's theme to it? Just as an fyi, this is a picture of it: http://www.wowpedia.org/File:Bone_Fishing_Pole.jpg?c=1
i got that for two toons from UC fishing quests.

I got the jewled fishing pole in Dalaran and it looks kinda Belf-ish.

If Dalaran quests give random fishing poles then maybe each race has one to get from the daily in each city.

There's plenty of dead Scourge in Northrend, too.

nope those are the only two race fishing poles, aside from the Dwarven Fishing Pole and the Goblin Fishing Pole

You just informed me that I wasted many many many hours in all my toons racial capitols. And my theory was confirmed by both my Forsaken fishing in UC. No poles for my other toons in their capitols.

/shake fist

edit: on the bright side, luck ensured that they both got their RP fishing poles.
